Munchies for March Madness Mania
Warm Pepperoni Pizza Olives
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 jar (4.5 ounces) jalapeno stuffed Spanish olives, drained
1 can (6 ounces) ripe pitted olives, drained
1 cup cubed pepperoni, about 5 ounces
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 teaspoons dried oregano
1/2 cup sun-dried tomatoes, roughly chopped
1 cup cubed Romano cheese, about 4 ounces
Combine oil, olives, pepperoni, garlic, oregano and sun-dried tomatoes in small saucepan.
Cook over medium-high heat until garlic is fragrant and oil is hot, about 5 minutes.
Remove from heat and leave in saucepan for a few minutes. Add cheese cubes and place in a serving bowl.
Place a shot glass filled with toothpicks next to the bowl so that your guests may use them to skewer the bites.
Drink Tip: A good all-around amber ale is a perfect match to the Pizza Olives as the flavors of malt will complement hearty ingredients such as pepperoni.
